Founders, Independent Contractors, and Employees: Employment Law Pitfalls for Startups

Between independent contractors, growing employee rosters, turnover, and founders who aren't necessarily well-versed in HR matters, the potential employment law pitfalls are myriad. Dealing with a possibly costly and time-consuming employment law matter can be a terrible setback for a growing business.
So how you best avoid these pitfalls? Join us for our October 2 happy hour presentation with Kristin Bremer Moore, Chair of Tonkon Torp's Labor & Employment Practice Group.
Kristin will discuss:
